U.S. Army TRADOC HQ Implements Furnace IPTV
Haivision’s Furnace Provides Infrastructure for Video Management and Distribution at U.S. Army TRADOC Headquarters
Havision Network Video today announced that its Furnace IPTV system is enabling video management and distribution over IP for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) headquarters. Furnace provides the infrastructure for delivering a range of educational and situational awareness video content.
The Furnace IP video system was implemented by Haivision’s Gold Partner, Whitlock, working under a subcontract to STG at the new TRADOC headquarters building. Under the terms of the contract, Whitlock was charged with the design, integration, and implementation of the state-of-the-art video over IP management and distribution system.
“The Furnace was the ideal choice to provide the video delivery backbone for this system,” said Alex Acevedo, design engineer for Whitlock. “The system is extremely easy to implement and use, and it provides capabilities to manage the system and end users centrally. Another appealing feature is that Furnace requires minimal ongoing IT support. The product’s InStream player technology works across all platforms and requires no installation or client system upgrades.”
The Furnace system offers features for encoding and distributing live video to computers and set-top boxes, creating scheduled playback channels for enterprise TV, recording content with real-time metadata, and delivering intelligent video on demand.
“The Furnace is designed to meet even the most challenging and mission-critical IP video distribution requirements — with features such as the ability to deliver the highest-quality live and recorded content, advanced integration, security, and control capabilities,” said Andy Vaughan, vice president federal sales for Haivision.
